I think the best adjectives to describe me would have to be Writer, Theorist, Hypothesist, Visionary, Photographer, Dreamer, and Believer.
I have learned that in life there are no true questions and no true answers. We all seek the same thing in life; but no one knows what it is they are after, they just know they are after something.
Built in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1866 the sailing ship Sobraon served Australia for 75 years (1866-1941). For 25 years until 1891 she carried large numbers of passengers and large cargoes between England and Australia. Then as a reformatory school ship from 1891 until 1911 she was home and a training centre for thousands of disadvantaged Sydney boys. In 1912 the ship was commissioned into the Royal Australian Navy and for 15 years she was a home and training establishment for thousands of boys seeking a career in the new Navy. After being decommissioned in 1927 the ship was sold to a private buyer and, during the 1930s Depression, she was used as a refuge for homeless men. Several attempts were made to preserve the old Sobraon permanently. Unfortunately these attempts failed and, tragically, the ship was finally broken-up in 1941 when the materials of which she was built were utilised in Australia’s war effort. Arguably, no other ship has served Australia so well for so long.
